'We Were Rich and We Didn't Know It'

March 14, 2019


Tom Phelan, (member of the Irish Cultural Society) the Freeport-based author of six novels, was born in 1940 and brought up on a boggy 52-acre farm outside Mountmellick, County Laois, in the Irish midlands. He now gives us a memoir, “We Were Rich and We Didn’t Know It,” a nimble exercise in storytelling in which he shapes his recollections into a series of richly detailed vignettes. 


Katherine A. Powers recently reviewed Tom's memoir in Newsday. Read the entire Newsday review by clicking here.
